moral choices, but about encountering a person, says Benedict XVI,

this in a message he wrote to Father Joseph Chalmers, Prior General of
the Order of the Brothers of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel,
who are gathered for their General Chapter in Rome through Sept. 22.
first Carmelites, "welcoming the lordship of Christ over their lives,
made themselves available to be transformed by his love. This is the
fundamental decision that every Christian faces," he added.
The Pope
commented on the theme of the general chapter: "'In Obsequio Jesu
Christi': A Prayerful and Prophetic Community in a Changing World." He
said the theme "well highlights the particular manner in which the
Carmelite Order seeks to respond to God's love, through a life infused
with prayer, fraternity and the prophetic spirit."
"With their eyes
fixed on Christ and trusting in the help of the saints who during the
last eight centuries have incarnated the dictates of the Rule of Carmel,
each member of the Order of Brothers of the Blessed Virgin Mary of
Mount Carmel feels called to be a credible witness of the spiritual
dimension of every human being," Benedict XVI said.
